In a relaxed and festive ambiance, around 25 distinguished guests from the realms of politics, business, and industry gathered at the Leonel Cigar Lounge in ZR Zigarren Reich, Berlin, to celebrate the debut of a truly special cigar: the Leonel Asia Edition 2024 Year of the Dragon. A highly esteemed guest of honour at this exclusive preview tasting was Her Excellency Tatiana Garcia Silva, the Ambassador of the Republic of Nicaragua.

Crafting a cigar dedicated to the formidable Chinese zodiac sign of the dragon requires something extraordinary to meet heightened expectations. “The dragon, symbolizing emperors, sets an exceptionally high standard,” emphasized Daniel Höldke, Managing Director of Paul Bugge Cigars, during the unveiling of this new Limitada. Alongside Torsten Reich, the proprietor of the renowned ZR Zigarren Reich cigar specialty store, he warmly welcomed the delighted audience.

The Leonel Asia 2024 Year of the Dragon marks a noteworthy moment for Leonel Cigars, the premium brand under Paul Bugge, as it references the Chinese New Year for the first time. The outcome of an extensive development process, this cigar flawlessly captures the essence of the Year of the Dragon.

From meticulously crafted aromas to the sophisticated belly band, the Leonel Asia 2024 Year of the Dragon distinguishes itself through its exceptional quality and meticulous attention to detail, a sentiment expressed with gratitude by cigar enthusiasts during the tasting. These aspects hold particular significance for Leonel Cigars as the purveyor of exquisite premium cigars.
